WFT is mutant disco?!?

Over the past month we ran four shows dedicated to answering the question WFT is mutant disco?!?

The term mutant disco was first used in New York in the late 70s to describe a post punk take on disco and funk; incorporating no wave, punk, jazz and post punk music. New York record label Ze Records named a compilation album 'Mutant Disco' in 1981 and more recently we have started using the term for some of our #gshlive DJ sets playing old and new artists making punk attitude dance music.

As there is no mutant disco rule book we have been pretty liberal in the tracks we have chosen for these shows, taking in bands from different Generating Steam Heat friendly genres; infact we made this look at mutant disco up as we went along! We did though reach a conclusion on what we think mutant disco is-music for open minded punks to dance to... Enjoy the shows.
